The gauntlet appears to have been first picked up sometime Tuesday evening on an Internet site called Pensblog, where anonymous posters share their thoughts from behind the veil of cryptic online identities.
"Luke overcooked my Thanksgiving turkey," someone posted.
"Luke moves your folding chair and parks in your space anyway," another wrote.
"Luke eats Frosted Flakes for breakfast, then appoints them to board positions."
That's just a sampling of the nonsensical onslaught that has been crackling across Twitter and various blogs this week. And it's all aimed at the mayor.
Actually, that isn't what happened. We posted the hash tag #ravenstahlrumors on Twitter, and it took off from there.
But cryptic online identities sounds cool, so we'll go with that.
Actually, maybe Tony Granato is behind all of this.
Anyway it would only seem right to follow up with a Luke Ravenstahl photoshop expo.
Should we roll it?
C-blog and emailers' call on this one.
P.S. A statement from our lawyer, Charlie De La Faggio, Esq.:

Thanksgiving is a good time to reflect upon your life and think about what you are thankful for.
It's also a good time to eat a ridiculous amount of food and pass out on the couch with your pants unbuttoned, but that doesn't lead itself to a blog post quite as well.
So today we're going to look at what certain NHL players (and coaches, GMs and others) are thankful for.
As you may have gathered from the banner, today marks the 18th year since Badger Bob left us.
And while it is Thanksgiving, we have to at least honor that.
We are thankful the Pens won last night.

This is the Canadiens' last regular season game in the Igloo.
They were the Penguins very first regular season opponent and they played in the first regular season game in Mellon Arena history.
That night - October 11th, 1967 - the Penguins lost 2-1 to Montreal.
We've posted this before, but this is the story of that first game:
The Habs are 45-31-13-2 all-time in the Igloo.

Announced by GM Marty the Chicken earlier today, we would like to publicly announce that Raybin is joining us as a writer.
Raybin will be running the weekend gig and some other stuff.
We are happy to have Raybin on board.
So that is now offically four writers for the blog.
We're trying to figure out how to make who writes what post more visible, but the best bet is to check underneath the post title:
The addition of Raybin gives us further ability to work on a major project
that will be revealed hopefully around Jan 1, 2010.

We said this about Thomas Vokoun's eventual collapse against the Penguins:
Did you ever have to poop really bad?Like so bad it felt like your stomach was flipping over.Maybe it was on a bus.Wherever it was, it was far away from a bathroom.
So you have to keep sucking it in and doing all you can not to shit yourself.After the third or fourth time of going through this and battling off those the goosebumps of death, you decide to just let it go. Just let the poop fly.The bathroom is too far away, and you'd rather be covered in your own feces in front of people then have fight it off one more minute.That was Tomas Vokoun tonight. He held back his poop........
Well guess what? Vokoun couldn't fight the shits again.
Call it Diarrhea Syndrome, as the Penguins again rallied from a two goal, third period deficit to beat the Panthers for the second time this season.
It is always the same story. Vokoun and the Panthers D played out of their minds in the first 45 minutes. But they could not hold the flood gates of feces in and they covered all 11 of their fans in it.
The first part of this game was nothing special. Horton hears a homo was nearly unstoppable. Panthers were cruising.
Other than Rupp beating some dudes face in, not alot of emotion.
Then the third period happened.
